Project ongoing, from October 2020 to September 2024

What is it about?

“Mindchangers” improves the capacities of Local Authorities and Civil Society Organisations to launch and run projects and activities that engage youth in addressing climate change and migrations. With the slogan “Know > Act > Change”, Mindchangers is running a pan-European, innovative youth-oriented campaign, sub-granting opportunities, research and capacity building.

What changes does this project inspire?

“Mindchangers” is increasing youth awareness and engagement for the Sustainable Development Goals. It is contributing to the public debate on climate change and migrations with a pan-European campaign that is mobilising young people to become agents of change. Through stories and voices from outside of the EU, Mindchangers shows the interconnection of global issues.
Through subgrants and capacity building, “Mindchangers” is improving the skills of local authorities (LAs) and civil society organisations (CSOs) to engage young people and communicate about the challenges of climate change and migrations. It is also helping them to connect with youth and other local and international actors.
“Mindchangers” granted 114 grass roots projects led by LAs and CSOs and involving over 350 entities. In the words of Khaled, one of the over 17 000 young people involved: “when I joined the activities I was very impressed, because I saw people like me doing something extraordinary, that is to have a real impact on the territory.”
